Quote, originally posted by Merc63 » As was mentioned, you can often get OEM glass from them. I haven't asked for OEM glass, and I haven't noticed any wavyness, even in the PT's curved windshield. The BMW and Range Rover were fairly flat, but they haven't been weak, even the heated RR one, so lighter may not be a bad thing. It may not always be as good as OEM, but I don't think it's enough to call it "crap" yet. Now, if it cracked easy, tended to chip/scratch easy (like I've seen from some aftermarket windshields) then yeah, I'd be inclined to agree. And who knows, that may be model specific, too.
It'd be interesting to find out the difference if they have to make one custom for the Mitsu, like it seems he was told might happen.
Safelite actually makes their own glass. They have several plants in the US. There were some problems with the first few batches of glass but that was corrected. Some of their glass is fine. In fact, a lot of the Safelite branded glass I've installed is better than the Mexican or Chinese made glass. It just depends. Honestly, the tech installing the glass makes more of a difference than the part itself. Good tech = good install 99% of the time.
